Two males are dead and two other victims were seriously injured after a one-vehicle accident early Thursday morning on Interstate 90 in eastern Mower County.
The Minnesota State Patrol reported that a Dodge Ram pickup was traveling westbound on I-90 approximately two miles west of Stewartville at 7:06 a.m. Thursday morning when it went out of control, rolled through the center median and ended up in the eastbound lane.
The State Patrol reported that the driver and a backseat passenger were ejected from the vehicle and were killed. Neither person was wearing a seatbelt. Two other passengers in the vehicle were hospitalized with serious injuries. The eastbound lanes of I-90 were closed for several hours Thursday morning from Dexter to Rochester because of the accident. The victims’ names have not yet been released.
The Minnesota State Patrol was assisted by the Sheriff’s Offices from Mower and Olmsted Counties, Grand Meadow Ambulance and Mayo Clinic Ambulance Service.
